overview

Situated on a remote island in the heart of the Okavango Delta's permanent wetlands, Camp Okavango assures a year-round water wilderness experience. Explore the area's winding, reed-lined channels and thick riverine forests for rare species such as the sitatunga antelope and Pel's fishing-owl, and get great views of more common large mammals like elephant, giraffe and buffalo.

The experienced and well-trained resident guides will introduce you to the Okavango Delta on mokoro (canoe) or motorboat safaris. You'll also be guided on thrilling nature walks around the islands of the Delta, great for bird watching. Reading benches and a plunge pool provide relief during the hot midday hours, and a secluded hide affords stunning views of the area's teeming floodplains and provides great photographic opportunities.

Facilities

The main area, a traditional thatched building, features a cocktail bar, lounge and a wildlife reference library, and you can cool off during the heat of the day in a shaded lounger or in the plunge pool.

Bird watchers and wildlife photographers should head for the camp's bird hide for an afternoon of wait-and-see: given that Camp Okavango lies at the heart of the Okavango Delta, anything could turn up!

Traveller Reviews

  • Loved the different activities. The exercise of the game walk was welcome (and needed) after sitting in the car for so long. The food was the best here.

    Sarah Poitras , July 2014
  • Our favorite place was Camp Okavanga in the Delta and, we preferred the more intimate experiences of smaller lodges.

    Paul Skolnick, July 2013
  • Camp Okavango is a wonderful camp with wonderful staff. It was a good idea to make us start with this camp. Walking safaris were very nice. Nice rooms even if our deck was in the trees with no view.

    Franck Soroste, June 2010
  • The entire staff were first rate!

    Robert Bradford, October 2008
  • Camp Okavango was paradise! It was beautiful. The tents were luxurious, pool was lovely. The staff here was fantastic. They all made an effort to chat to us. It was very social with everyone eating together. The food was delicious. Our guide, Banda, was brilliant. We went on long walking safaris every morning. We learnt so much about the wildlife, tracks, dung!, flora and fauna. We felt safe and very well looked after. In the afternoons we were out on boats fishing or on the Mokoru boats with sunset drinks. It was such a romantic place and was better than we ever imagined.

  • Chobe was wonderful although more "hotel" and therefore less personal. Food more to the tourist palate (or so some think) and staff with a few more issues. Our room was great and the animal sightings were truly remarkable. There is a great and delightful advantage to being on a property right in this magnificent park.

    Deirdre Hamstead, July 2008
  • In particular, Camp Okavango and especially Duma Tau were the best lodges we stayed in: we appreciated not only the quality of the accommodation, but also the kindness and the competence of the guides. We met very well prepared and smart guys who made it possible for us to live through the real African wildlife.

"My fondest memory of Camp Okavango is the expansive open-air patio leading off the dining-room, where starry-skied evenings around the fire were enjoyed."
